If you’re looking for the natural stone look, but your worried about the upkeep. There is a new product out that looks very similar to marble, but is engineered, so theres no sealing or worry about staining, scratching or etching. You can find them in honed or polished finishes. Its basically a large porcelain/ceramic tile, but in a slab form. The thickness is approx 1/4″/1cm, which makes them lightweight for easy installation on shower walls or floors. Most slab sizes come in 59″ x 118″ or 39″ x 118″. They are ideal for applications that have weight restrictions; such as yachts/boats, aircraft, elevators, RV’s & motor homes. The price is definetly a perk, compared to natural stone. There are only a few certified fabricators in the Seattle area that fabricate them, and we are one of them :-) We also have natural stone in 1cm thickness slabs. Check out Crocodile Rocks for current stock. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, we can turn any 2cm or 3cm slabs into 1cm lightweight slabs. Inquire within our office for pricing.
